Small reason to grin, NHP Troopers Sue Department Over K-9 Program

LAS VEGAS -- A group of Nevada Highway Patrol troopers and a retired police sergeant have filed a racketeering complaint against the NHP and Las Vegas Metro Police in U.S. District Court.

The complaint alleges that after then-Gov. Jim Gibbons approved a K-9 program to target drug runners on Nevada's highways, Nevada Highway Patrol Commander Chris Perry intentionally undermined the program.

The complaint alleges that the drug-sniffing dogs used by troopers in the program were intentionally being trained to operate as so-called trick ponies, or dogs that provide officers false alerts for the presence of drugs.

The dogs were being trained to alert their handlers by cues, instead of by picking up a drug's scent by sniffing, the complaint said. When a dog gives a false alert, this resulted in illegal searches and seizures, including money and property, the complaint said. http://www.8newsnow.com/story/18886948/nhp-troopers-sue-depa...

Now consider this: these officers crossed the Blue Line

They will suffer reproach from their peers and superiors. They are gonna have to run a gauntlet and their rank, careers and pensions are in jeopardy.

See, there are real men and women in blue still. Real people of honour. Those who take the Oath and keep it. That's why among us is an organisation called the Oath Keepers.

They are not as one poster below says "still just cops". And this reminder, in our movement historically we treat people as individuals, not by collectivist labels.

That gentle reminder. Now have a great day!

There is nothing strange about having a bar of soap in your right pocket, it's just what's happening.

I assume all oathkeepers are duespaying members of LEAP

Well until then .. btw...

LEAP = law enforcement against prohibition

They a frickin' criminals!!! They have conspired to deprive citizens of their rights. The same citizens they are supposed to serve and protect, and the ones that pay their (exorbitant) salaries. They should be tried and punished much more severely than the victimless "criminals" they so zealously persecute with no fear of being held accountable. I'll refrain from grouping - Flog (most of) the Police, and the horses they bugger in on.

I have no pension, or anything else. I'm just an old marine that will shove your ignorant head up your ass for disparaging the Oathkeepers.

Jesus said" swear no oaths"

What oath did your swear?

To threaten those who disagree with you?

Well all cops care about is

Well all cops care about is their 'rank, careers, and pensions' because they sure as hell don't fear going to jail for their crimes. On noos they do something wrong they might lose their taxpayer funded good life. Get a real job cops! You know one where you actually have to work for a living by providing an individual with a product or service that they voluntarily pay for.

This is untrue. My teenage

This is untrue. My teenage daughter was carjacked, kidnapped, raped 3 years ago. Afterwords, the guy tried to kill her several times. There is no way he would have been caught if it wasn't for incredibly hard and diligent work by investigators. Who would find people like this if you had your way? Hmm?

I sat through the trial of the perpetrator this last week and I can tell you for certain that there are a great number of absolutely phenomenal police officers, sheriffs deputies, prosecutors and judges. Through the course of this whole ordeal, I have personally witnessed a long list of people who care more than you can know, and have gone out of their way to do the absolute right thing. The attention to detail by these folks is astounding. Prior to this, I had no idea how much scrutiny these people are under.

I admit that there are plenty of cops that are bad, but you need to reconsider the wording of your statement because it is not "all" of them.

The human race divides politically into those who want people to be controlled and those who have no such desire. - Heinlein

Cops only have one job to do:

Cops only have one job to do: apprehend an individual that has infringed upon another individuals life liberty or property(like your story you posted). If they are doing anything but that one and only job then they are just a waste of money I was forced at gunpoint to give them.

THEY'RE STILL COPS.

THEY'RE STILL COPS.

My father became a cop when he was

laid off from a local plant. He worked at the Prison and was hurt more times than you have balls enough to try. F you you chicken shit jerk. My father just wanted to retire. He was just a plant worker. He tried to make things easier for the prisioners. All they saw was weakness. Fuck them and Fuck you!

It's just another example.

that the real criminals are wearing the badges.

Stuff like this is the norm, rather than the exception.
The FBI crime lab manufactures fake evidence.
The "stings" capture innocent people.

The Attorney General is a criminal, and the Justice Department refuses to prosecute him. The President is in on it.

Thw whole damn country has run amok!

maybe the strongest evidence

will be the photos of the 300 chihuahuas and help win the case for em!
